Nah, seems to be very low on FPS to mee. Must be something that drag down your fps. What kind of weather do you have? Are in VC? Any detailed add-on sceneries? When are you reading the FPS, on ground,enroute?Also open your task manager and see if you have too many unnecessary prosesses going, often this will lead to serious fps hit.Maybe your graphics(I have the same) may set you back a little, and a little more RAM wouldn't hurt, but actually your system should cope well.

Try turning off the detailed cloud effects. Makes a HUGE difference on my machine. Also, what resolution are you running at? Is this occurring around big airports? Sitting at Heathrow with Ultimate Traffic will definately nail you.

Your TI 4200 is older technology now. Also it does not support DirectX9 very well and FS9 is a DirectX9 title, this means either the processor on the graphics card or your main cpu is doing alot of work translating dx9 into something the graphics card understands.If you were looking to upgrade I would consider a graphics card that supports DirectX9 natively.cheers, Nick

First thank you for your help. :()I always use the VC view and i use weather that comes with the adventure (I fly for a virtual airline) or i use real weather.Ok so I understand that I have to spend a little cash on a new graphics card. Well I must admit that I suspected that my current graphicscard was dragging my system down a bit. :((Could anyone tell my what FPS to expect If i bought a new card??What is your FPS??thanks again......Only Pilots know why birds sing...
